STILLWATER, Minn. (WCCO) – A group of firefighters and paramedics in Stillwater is doing everything it can to raise awareness for men’s cancer research during November.
The group calls themselves “Mo Medics and Mo Friends” and is made up of paramedics from Lakeview Hospital in Stillwater as well as firefighters and other members of the community. The group is about 100 members strong and is still accepting members and donations. Go to the “Mo Medics and Mo Friends” Movember page for more on how to donate and get involved.
The group is hoping to raise about $15,000 towards research for prostate and testicular cancer.
“Mo Medics and Mo Friends” will also host a Pints for Prostate event at Lift Bridge Brewery in Stillwater on Nov. 19 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Lift Bridge will donate $1 to Movember from every beer sold to the group.
They’re also doing an online auction starting this Friday Nov. 15 that will run for two weeks. All items have been donated by local businesses.
